George Clooney Shuns Acting Method
George Clooney will never fully immerse himself in an acting role because he would hate to disrupt the bond between cast and crew.
George Clooney thinks method acting causes problems on set.
The 'Up in the Air' actor insists he tries not to fully immerse himself in a role because he would hate to affect the Bond between cast and crew and make people feel uncomfortable.
He explained: "I wouldn't call myself a method actor - and there are some really talented ones among them. I don't carry a role around with me. That could cause problems for other people on the team, for the whole Atmosphere at work.
"For Example when you have to isolate yourself for a role, avoid everyone else. When you're shooting a film the team is your family, everyone has to feel comfortable to do a good job. That's really important, not just from my point of view as a producer."
George also explained how the cast and crew on medical Drama 'E.R' bonded over practical jokes, which gave them light relief after filming harrowing scenes.
He added: "We always had to act out gruesome, despairing blows of fate. Someone would lie dying in front of us on the operating table when all of a sudden someone shouts 'Cut!' and someone else sits down on a fart cushion. Furious laughter. Everyone's in high spirits again, even the corpse. Basically I was always happy to shake off that role at night and spend time with the crew."
